Using Task Cards to Asses Perimeter

Writing a quick post for my my link up with the awesome Tara and 4th Grade Frolics!

Here goes!
I've had a goal to have at LEAST one project a week.  We are heading into the home stretch of the school year.  AND 5 short days until Spring Break.  Yahoo!  This will be JUST enough time to complete the next Topic in Envision Math covering Perimeter.  Hard to believe in our OLD series that we had ONE day for Perimeter, ONE day for Area, and ONE day for Volume.  Common Core has been a game changer for sure.

I have front-loaded the the term "Perimeter" for quite some time.  Each time we cut out our pages for Interactive Notebooks, I tell them to make sure you have cut along 3 perimeters, etc.  Now, we are feet first into the actual chapter, and I am psyched.  Enter....a task card set I put together.

I knew that I wanted to test them on many levels, so I created cards that will show mastery in adding ALL sides given, using what they know about shapes to infer the length of other sides to find perimeter, finding the missing side when they are given the perimeter, and to create a shape given the perimeter.

Aren's these little pirates just precious??  I LOVE Melonheadz Illustrating!
These are on sale at my TPT store at a reduced price through Tuesday if you want to snatch them up!

I also have a FREEBIE at my store to create your own simple 7-lined poem using verbs and adverbs.  You can read more about it here!

Have a great week!  5 days....5 days...  I can DO this!
